NEW! Seeking participants!

In recognition of ongoing gender imbalance at leadership levels in STEAMM disciplines, we are developing an in-house and online workshop aimed at supporting women through the academic promotion application process. We are currently seeking input from women academics willing to fill in an anonymous online survey about their promotion application experiences. Those completing the survey can choose to go into the draw to win one of several prizes, which include:

One free (!) edit of a promotion application (valued at $2,000), and

One of 50 free seats on the online promotion application course (valued at $385 per seat).

All prizes will be drawn by COB Wednesday, 31 July 2019. Responses received after that date will not be considered.
